    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    I 'try' to think everything happens

    I'm a firm believer in this

    because every action has a reaction. What ever you give out you get back. Everything always lines u. Something always needs to happen before something else does. Sometimes bad turns to good.. Good to bad... Good to great... Bad to worse... It all depends on choices we make

    One door closes and another one opens.

    Safety Net There is none in life.

    Negative thoughts and feelings will return.

    It's okay to feel them but do not linger in them, it's not wise. But I have faith that things will someday change.

    we want to believe it

    because in this way we can pretend to have control on our life. The problem is that we can't accept that most of the things happen in our life are because of the chaos. Simple, nothing else.
